What's wrong with its throat?

Looks like it has avian pox. I posted a question to this forum asking about a house sparrow with multiple of those growths. Consensus was avian pox. Then next day I saw a chipping sparrow with pox as well.


Sorry, that was already answered. For some reason clicking next unread topic isn't bringing me to the most recent post in the topic.

Not sure how rare this is, but a Great-tailed Grackle has been hanging out at a local McDonald's for the last two weeks in Portland, OR, which is a fair ways out of its normal range. Some Portland birders have nicknamed him McGrackle, and he was first seen eating a french fry. I personally find the whole thing very funny.
